This piece is on an 8×8 gallery mount canvas. On it, I used materials such as papers, silk flowers/leaves, real pressed plants, and material as the background. As embellishment, of course, there were buttons, and also ribbon, seed beads, small washers, feathers – let's see did I get everything. 🙂
My idea of "all buttoned up" came from the idea that once I had added the buttons – which came as one of the last steps, that the piece was finished – or "all buttoned up". I also liked the way the buttons, which are round, worked with the wording of the piece.
